I really like your Generics.Colletions work. I share the same interface 
with that of Delphi, so I can easily find usage examples of it on the 
net which is important.
I have no idea how to use fgl properly and had to try and error, which 
is dangerous for a programmer.

I also used your NewPascal installation to cross compile to ARM. You 
save me a lot of time.

I intend to use mORMot in future as well. It appears to be on a good path.

I can't negate any bad critics but please consider my positive feedback 
to your great work.
